Plus One Mentoring

Early intervention to divert young people from the youth justice system.

Plusone utilises the skills and life experience of local volunteer mentors to engage with young people aged 8-14 within their own communities. Mentors develop positive, trusting relationships with young people, equipping the young people with skills and knowledge to make informed choices.

Using a youth work approach delivered by trained volunteer mentors, Plusone has been proven to not only successfully change behaviour, attitudes and choices in the young people referred, but to do this at a cost to the state that represents exceptional value.
